Plot – Spoilers:
Set among the Szekelys, Hungarians living in Transylvania, Katalin’s husband finds out he is not the biological father of their son. Though he loves them, he succumbs to the traditional village norms and banishes them. So mother and son travel on horse-and-cart through Transylvanian emptiness, ostensibly to visit Katalin’s mother, but in actuality, searching for the rapists responsible for the bastardly situation. Bereft of sleaze or obvious shock, this is recommended for those who enjoy slow-moving beauty.
